12 Random But Helpful Facts About Men

Gazing Upon The Little Guy

Gazing Upon The Little Guy

How does anyone study this..?!! Anyway, sorry gents, but it appears that in England, one third of all men aged from thirty-five to forty years of age, are to overweight to see their own penises. This is a tragedy. How will they know if they still have one?

Skinny Stamina

Skinny Stamina

You might think that a slimmer and more typically celebrated body type of a man would make him more fit and give him stamina. That may be the case, say, on the sports field for example, but when it comes to the bedroom, it has been reported that slender men can maintain an erection for an average of 1.8 minutes. This hardly seems like enough time to even get started really.



Weight Working Well

Weight Working Well

 According to an in-depth scientific study (probably), overweight men are able to make love for an average of 7.3 minutes. Which makes me wonder if the term “overweight” really is a suitable one. I would say that if you can go the distance (or more so than the skinny guy) then your weight is working well for you and is not a problem.

Quality Semen

Quality Semen

While the number of sperm a man produces is not associated with diet, the health of those sperm can be. Sperm count is actually predetermined by how many germ cells – which become sperm cells – migrate into a man's testes before he is born. What a man eats or drinks however can influence how well a sperm performs as well as the chance of any fertilized egg growing successfully in the mother's womb.



Be Like Bugs

Be Like Bugs

Whilst it is and always will be about maintaining a healthy mix of input as a regular diet, with sperm production and life in general, there are certain fruits and vegetables that are especially good. Lots of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins C and E, and zinc and selenium are needed for healthy sperm. Foods which are rich in these minerals and vitamins are ideal.

Lay Off The Bacon

Lay Off The Bacon

A 2012 study in the American Journal for Nutrition found that, in a sample of 701 Danish men, high intake of saturated fat was associated with low sperm concentration and low total sperm count. Which means if you decide you want to actually make babies after all the practice you’ve been getting, you may want to ditch the bacon.



They're Right There With You (sometimes)

They're Right There With You (sometimes)

This is known as Couvade syndrome, or simply sympathetic pregnancy. It is a condition in which a partner experiences some of the same symptoms and behaviour of an expectant mother. These most often include minor weight gain, altered hormone levels, morning nausea, and disturbed sleep patterns. In more extreme cases, symptoms can include labor pains, postpartum depression, and nosebleeds. This might make men consider having a child a little longer.

The Male G-Spot

The Male G-Spot

The prostate gland isn’t just something that may cause you grief once you reach the age of forty, in fact there is a term referred to as prostate massage or even more strangely named, prostate milking, which is the massage or stimulation of the male prostate gland for medical or sexual stimulation purposes.



Time With The Boys

Time With The Boys

No, that's not a euphemism for checking for lumps.

Hear this ladies (when you  feel you’re being neglected); a study in the United Kingdom suggests that men need at least two guy’s nights a week to remain healthy. So, if you care to do the math, you still win. You get five nights and the boys get two. Almost seems unfair to a guy’s friends really.

Straight Men (Not-So-Straight Porn)

Straight Men (Not-So-Straight Porn)

Straight men consume more transsexual porn than any other demographic. The technical term for men who are attracted to feminized men is gynandromorphophilia. The sexual interests of gynandromorphophiles may include either pre- or post-operative male-to-female transsexuals or male cross-dressers. Although men with such interests are usually stereotyped as being gay, that could not be further from the truth. In fact, research has found that the vast majority (73%) of men who have sex with male-to-female transsexuals identify as straight or bisexual.



Men Have Bigger Brains Than Women!!

Men Have Bigger Brains Than Women!!

That may be true, but it doesn’t necessarily mean than men are automatically smarter than women. On average male brains have a total volume that is between eight and 13 per cent larger than that of females. Certain areas of the brain are bigger in women and other bigger in men. However, to suggest to a woman that men are smarter because of a slightly larger brain would prove a man stupid.

You Can't Predict The Size Of An Erect Penis By Looking At It Flaccid

You Can't Predict The Size Of An Erect Penis By Looking At It Flaccid

It’s like the human anatomy’s version of the old saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover”. There is a much wider range of size in men's penises when flaccid, with the average ranging from 2.5cm to 10cm (1 to 4 inches). In general, smaller flaccid penises lengthen at erection by a greater percentage than do larger flaccid penises, with most men reaching an average size of 12.5cm to 17.5cm (5 to 7 inches), so the flaccid size of a penis is not a good predictor of erect size.
